President, 1952-1959 Dean of the College, 1934-1952 Above: Father Smith extends con- gratulations to his successor, Father Crandell. Typifying Father Smith's career at the Hill, he is here- shown checking plans for Walsh Hall, one of three new buildings erected during his presi- dency. DEDICATION The problem of a dedication for this 1960 Torch was dra- matically solved for us at about 6 o'clock in the evening of December 3, when the news spread rapidly across campus that Spring Hill had a new President. Students thronged to the A.B. Quadrangle,- windows were thrown open to the Fathers' recreation room on the second floor, and Father Smith looked out to accept the ringing tribute of those who were just beginning to realize that a familiar and beloved figure would soon be absent from the Hill, where he had served as professor, Dean, and President for more than 25 years. Graduating from Spring Hill in 1916, Father Smith entered the Society of Jesus and was a teaching scholastic here in 1923-24, during which he was moderator of the College's first yearbook and of the SPRINGHILLIAN QUAR- TERLY. He received his doctorate in English from the Univer- sity of Chicago in 1934, and began his career as Dean and Professor of English at the College. Appointed President in 1952, he began the program which has brought unpreceden- ted expansion in the Hill's student body and facilities. In addition to three new buildings, all others were extensively renovated, and the faculty was correspondingly enlarged and strengthened. Right: The 7 o'clock Mass was said regularly by Father Smith in the Stu- dent Chapel. FACULTY Above: Father Smith conducts burial service for Father James J. Wallace, SJ., who had been Spiritual Father for the Jesuit community. Students and faculty attended the September 28 services. and ADMINISTRATION A. WILLIAM CRANDELL, S.J. President of the College * * * Taking over the reins December 3, Father Crandell was not a stranger to Spring Hill and its problems. He had taught here from 1933 through 1935, served as Provincial Superior of all Southern Jesuits from 1950 to 1956, and was Dean of Loyola University in New Orleans from 1942 to 1950.

ASSUMPTION HALL Jesuit House of Studies A distinctive part of the Spring Hill scene are the young Jesuits and Brothers of the Sacred Heart who live in their independent houses of study, just off campus, yet take most of their classes with other students. Roman collars distinguish the Jesuit priests-to- be, while a black tie marks the young Brother who is en route to teaching in a high school of his Order.

STUDENT Government A continuous rush of business kept Stu- dent Government meeting and acting, beginning with planning and carrying out Freshman Week Orientation and assisting with Registration. The Wel- fare Committee crusaded for improved cafeteria and laundry service, and their efforts culminated in SAGA Food Service taking over, with its policy of unlimited seconds (except for Satur- day night's steak). The Entertainment Committee brought Buddy Morrow here for the Student Government Dance, and Papa Celestine's Orches- tra for the basketball season Home- coming initiated this year.

YENNI PLAYERS Bright days were forecast early for Yenni, when Mr. George Black joined the faculty in September as Yenni Director and instructor in English. Mr. Black was graduated from the Hill in 1957, after directing and starring in plays produced by Yenni or the two other theatre groups in Mobile. Two plays hit the boards here this year: Christopher Fry's THE LADY IS NOT FOR BURNING, and Emlyn Williams's NIGHT MUST FALL. To relax, players partied April 1st. Above: Mr. Black concentrates on rehearsal problem. Left: Directing Carol Blum and John Delay in re- hearsal for NIGHT MUST FALL.

Below: Jim Carney (as the Friar) muses over his problems during scene of THE LADY IS NOT FOR BURNING. ■• "The LAPy Is Not For BURNING" This modern metrical play by Chris- topher Fry was staged November 18-20 in The College Inn. Set in a mythical 15th-century English vil- lage, it presents a disillusioned sold- ier of fortune (Syd Smith) who wants to be hanged by Mayor Tyson (Claude Barbazon). The Mayor, however, would prefer to burn a local girl (Joan Barry) at the stake for witchcraft. A sub-plot has twin brothers (Saxton Berggren and John Schulte) vying for the hand of an heiress (Nancy Sheffield), who rejects their mother-in-law (Ann Flattery) and elopes with the Mayor's clerk (Bill Nailen). Left: Flattery breaks up quarrel between her two "sons," Schulte and Berggren; Rogers, Carney and Barbazon; Barry and Smith; Berggren (on floor) shows that claim of his death is largely fictitious. Below: Joan Barry reveals herself to be a mysteriously Oriental princess. Below: Smith urges Flattery to abandon in- terference with others' lives. 108 // NIGHT MUST TALL" Emlyn Williams's mystery-melodrama opened April 6 in College Inn for a three-night run. Set in a quiet English village, it presents an illness- faking lady (Carol Blum'! who falls for the charms of the local inn's bell-boy (John Delay), who turns out to be a psychopathic murderer. Her niece (Nancy Sheffield) also protects him, but he gets his final come-uppance from Scotland Yard* (Bill Nailen). Left: "Dan" cozens "Mrs. Bramson" by pretending to enjoy her book.

Right: "Dan" confronts group who have ransacked his suitcase and were just about to open hatbox. 109 ARTISTS at WORK... To the dismay of Hill singers, it was decided that putting on a musical comedy this year would take much time away from their studies, but there were other outlets: The Glee Club presented its programs, and the Mobile Symphony, Opera Guild and Workshop requisitioned the services of many Hill musicians. And a wood-carving course was added to courses previously available in the arts major. Left: Peggy Spear and Bill Heath sang the lead roles in SONG OF NORWAY, November 27-28 production by Opera Guild Workshop.

Ill PORTIER DEBATORS Climaxing its activities with a tie for 2nd place in the Hill-sponsored Azalea Debate Tournament, Portier could look back and forward to debates at the University of Alabama, Emory University, Millsaps College, the University of Mississippi and Missssppi State College for Women. The year was brought to a well-rounded close by a Dinner-Dance at Gulas Restaurant.

Club tfas "reborn" Dec. 10 and celebrated with a New dear's Eve party in Detroit. DETROIT CLUB Detroiters repaired raft and painted equipment at Mirror Lake (and repainted parking stripes) as part of their service activities for the College. 113 VETERANS CLUB The vets are now down to a corporal guard at the Hill, with student vets almost outnumbered by those on the faculty, but the Veterans Club is going strong. Parties, Thanksgiving Dinner at the Country Club, Veterans Day observance, Mass — and they took review of the ROTC Battle Group November 13. Right: Portion of veterans group during ceremonies at memorial to Spring Hill men who have served in Armed Forces. Below: Sid Smith (re-elected Veterans Club president) and Lt. Col. Reynolds at attention after Smith laid wreath by memorial. 114 Latin- American Club Most of the Cubans are gone, but many of the other "South of the Border" nations are represented at the Hill, and the "Latinos" had a big year: dance at VFW Hall Nov. 13, cocktail party at Andy's Lounge Dec. 12, party at Korbet's March 4, dinner-dance at the Colony May 8.

Local disc-jockey Dick Price served as announcer, with Milt Boiling coach- ing the New Yorkers in their 6-32 loss. Lt. Col. Reynolds's Chicago "Bears" got off to a slow start, but sewed things up with three last-quarter touch- downs. Left: New Yorkers gather for photo. Bob i Colgan prexied group in 1959-60, with Jack ' Gleeson taking over for 19601961.

They showed their stuff by getting out 14 issues (a new record), in- cluding a hurry-up special job on the occas- ion of Father Crandell's inauguration as our new President. Rewards came in the form of a pre-Christmas pizza dinner at Tony's and a spring picnic, plus a party for staffers in the Bamboo Room. Above: Father Freeman, Moderator, keeps editor Warren's nose sharp. Left and Below: The pizzas and soft drinks kept disappearing during December 13 party which taxed facilities of Tony's Pizza Parlor. 119 The MOTLEY After their first efforts were suppressed by Mod- erator Father Murray as too "morbid," MOTLEY staffers rebounded to produce their annual quarterly. Editor John Hafner was assisted by associate editors Louie Courie, Jim Howell, John Schulte and Jim Wallace,- art editors Sylvia Mc- Griff (who contributed pioneering photo essay); staffers George Warren, Rhoda Heile, Ray David, Marilyn Johnson, Joan Barry and Joy Serda. Samples of material in Winter issue were Howell's "A Southern Tragedy," Bill Wade's "Hard and Fast," and Nailen's "A Mortician's Lament." Also Amen's "Stu- dent's Act of Contrition." Left and Below: Schulte and Hafner confer on fate of an art masterpiece; Schulte, Heile, Hafner and Courie enjoy an especially morbid contribution. 120 1960 TORCH If all went well, you got your copy of this gem some- where within a month or so of its projected appear- ance-date. Terry Twine braved the summer heat to collect for the 1959 ads and line up our faithful ad- vertisers for this issue. Jerry Becker came through with the "Mad Comics" cartoons.

Below: Mr. Jimmy O'Connor and daughter Sandra worked behind portrait camera of Master Photographers. BADGER ATHLETES It was a familiar story, with variations: our teams were short on experienced "horses," but they carried opponents down to the wire. Especially gratifying were the traditionally undying support given by stu- dents and faculty, and the return of Hill tennis to prominence. Rooters turned out in force also for some fine intramural rivalries, sparked by the coeds and fraternities. Above: Halboth and Moye in doubles action on Hill courts. Left: Crane seeks to play possession ball against Nichols at Portier Center December 7; Tordella swings wide to run (or pass?) in intramural touch-football classic. Below: Jim Connolly hits a beauty off No. 1 tee in match here against Tulane University April 29. 122 OUR TEAMS ARE REP HOT! Above: Colgan and Hagendorfer enjoy December 1st bon- fire which preceded basketball opener against St. Bernard's. The Hill's own Mayor Joe Langan addressed huge crowd which turned out. Right: Wilcox takes first on wild throw. Below: Two new trophy cases were installed in Walsh Hall Lounge to accommodate memorials to Hill teams and past champions. 123 BASKETBALL It shouldn't have happened to such a nice guy: this year's cage crew had only a handful of returning lettermen (no seniors among them), and both coaches departed. But young Glenn Murphy who had been coaching high school basketball in the St. Louis area after graduation from the Hill (B.S., history, 1953), undertook the job of rebuilding. This was further complicated when Father Dorn, who had been named Athletic Director, became ill; but Father Mulhern step- ped in to fill that post. Only one victory, a thriller over Tampa, rewarded their efforts, but they put a scare into many opponents. Below, 1st row: Father Joseph Lambert Dorn, Athletic Direc- tor; Jack Gleeson, Price Crane, Tom O'Connor (juniors), Mr. Glenn Murphy, Coach. 2nd row: Bill Tuohey, manager; Joe Nolfe, Gerald Owens, Gerald Lewis, Dennis Malcor (sopho- mores).

Two wins didn't quite balance 17 losses for our diamond squad, as errors and silent bats helped to keep a green but eager pitch- ing staff in constant trouble. Each member of the no-seniors Hill squad showed flashes of fine play at bat and in the field, but as is usual with Badger teams there was that lack of poise which can only be cured by experience.

Father Schwing took over the coaching reins, and was assisted by Mr. Tom Langan of Mobile. Crowds of students turned out for each home match and observed the proper tennis etiquette of applaud- ing good shots — especially those by Hill players.

INTRAMURAL ATHLETICS VOLLEYBALL At the Nov. 1 end of regulor season play, the Badger-League Bil likens had a perfect record of 21-0. In the Freshman section, the Oilers piled up a 17-4 record over their rivals. Purple and White Leagues had the Irish and Bulldogs on top, with 21-6 and 22-2 records, respectively. For the coeds, Geri Packard, Mary Jane Murphy and Aileen Flynn led the Falcons over five rivals. FOOTBALL Until too many breaks and sprains started heading for Dr. Browning's office across Old Shell Road, there was a fantastic series of real block-and-tackle football games, without pads or headgear, which saw Brooke Arnold and Jack Scannel leading their Florida squad to victories over all comers. These led to the famous New York-Chicago challenge match at Hartwell Field, and the coed touch-football frenzies (both covered elsewhere). In regular I. M. play, the Arabs lost only one game in topping the White League, with the Bluejays winning the Purple crown in a playoff against the Irish. The Freshman League Oilers scored 226 points and held rivals to 38, while both Gauchos and Spartans tied in the ^Badger League with 7-2 records. BOWLING The Straight-Balls, 2nd-half champions, knocked off the lst-half champion Fire-Balls, 3-1, and all participants celebrated with Moderator Father Schwing at a Camellia Lanes barbecue May 5. On the winning team were Jim Murphy, Imorde, Durel, Halboth and Jack Smith, with Coerver, Calandro, Nan Stuardi and Yemm pitching for the Fire-Balls. Tony Schwing won the high 3-game series trophy; J. B. Egan, high singles; Layne, highest average; Nan Stuardi, highest coed 1-game score,- Ann Doody, high 3-game score. BASKETBALL The Packers, led by Dan Conlin's furious play, knocked off their highly touted Irish Randag-led rivals in Inter-League Tourney play, with the Gators topping competition in the Badger League, and the Rams taking regular-season honors in the Freshman League. The Faculty team won over an Alumni squad in a full-fledged rivalry (with half-time show) at U.M.S. SOFTBALL Dixie Cahill pitched the Senoritas to an 18-2 victory over their rival Mademoiselles to win the Coed League championship with 3 wins and no losses. In the Purple and White Leagues, the Eagles beat Arabs in a play- off for the season title, lost to the Colts in their first Inter-League Tourney game, then came back to win that tournament by licking the Oilers twice. The Wolves took the Badger League championship from close-rivals, the Gators. GOLF Calandro bested O'Malley for championship-flight honors, with Ros trapping Nixon in the first-flight. Blunt, Perez and Crowley won out in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th flights, respectively, over Umbach, Devlin and Layne. YACHTING Bud Barrett, Ist-semester commodore of the Mobile Yacht Club-based Hill sailors, arranged a full schedule of Sunday competitions for his mates, and with crewman Tim Murray won the Gulf Yachting Association's Fall Regatta. Bad luck (weather) cancelled the Gulfport regatta schedule by the Southern Intercollegiate Yachting Association, but Barrett (elected vice- commodore of the association) has begun plans for a Spring Hill-sponsored invitational regatta here next April 7-8. Among the some 2-dozen Hill sailors are also Lou Ray, Marilyn Johnson and Merrill True (2nd-semester commodore). JUDO A non-varsity sports newcomer this year. Father Freeman gathered a band of enthusiasts who cleaned up and equipped a small gym on the first floor of Quinlan, where "Key-Clubbers" could work out with their weights and get judo instruction from Dennis Sams, who had been an Army instructor in the sport. They hope to train a 9-man squad for future intercollegiate rivalries. Below: Lynn's furious defense sends Gwen's pass astray in Powder-Puff Bowl.

Army, Commanding Officer 140 IN MEMORIAM En route to ROTC Summer Camp at Fort Benning, Captain Joseph Sherman had a cerebral hemorrhage which led to an opera- tion from which he did not recover. Since coming to the Hill in 1958 as assistant to Lt. Col. Reynolds, Captain Sherman had been an extremely popular moderator of the Pershing Rifles. His efforts were crowned this year when they were awarded the Father O'Leary Trophy as the organization which contributed most to Spring Hill's spirit.

International Relations Club We finally located the lost negative for the photo alongside, so we can do belated justice to a busy organization, which sponsored lectures on Algeria and the Foreign Aid Program. There was also a program of documentary movies on Hawaii, South Africa and Germany. Members also attended the twice- monthly meetings of Mobile's Foreign Policy Association, and prodded interest in Mr. Carleton Smith's lecture: "The Battle for Men's Minds" sponsored by the College's Lecture and Concert Series.

Spring Hill ALUMNI Association Besides sponsoring the party at the Colony Restaurant, where the Class of 1960 was inducted into Alumni membership, the Alumni also had their own Christmas Party and the Alumni Homecoming Feb. 5-7. Illi- nois state senator Phil Carey, '40, served as MC at the Country Club banquet, during which Mr. Sam Betty was honored as "Alumnus of the Year" by Omicron Fraternity. Guest speaker was Mr. Bill Daly, former football coach and athletic director here.

Bell, president of the Mobile Alumni, oversees prepa- rations for one of the beer-and- shrimp parties held here by his group. 152 As the task of assembling this 1960 Spring Hill College yearbook nears its end, we cannot help but be im- pressed by the great amount of energy being expended here on the Hill, and by the results obtained. Which raises the question: How much is our Mobile community, or an even wider circle, aware of Spring Hill's accomplishments — and even greater needs? The task of making our Alma Mater known and respected is largely the job of her students and alumni. This task has always been assisted by a loyal core of businessmen who have given both encouragement and fi- nancial assistance — as is witness- ed by the support of our ADVER- TISERS. Give them YOUR support in return.
